so, u want to show image/photos on image or picturebox then when u click that control you will browse image to show, right? if i didn't wrong in understand your post, this is code for showing image..
add microsoft common dialog 6.0 control on add componet. use common dialog on your form.
Private Sub Image1_Click()
'.InitialDirectory = "C:\"
.Filter = "All Files|*.*|Bitmaps|*.bmp|GIFs|*.gif|JPEGs|*.jpg"
.FilterIndex = 4
Image1.Stretch = True
Image1.BorderStyle = 1
Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(CommonDialog1.FileName)
lblFilePath.Caption = CommonDialog1.FileName
filter index to set image extension when first open dialog shown.
lblFilePath just for showing file path, if u dont like it to shown you can remove it.
